KEY GAME INFORMATION
CLEVELAND: GUARDS: There are some durability concerns, but KYRIE IRVING is on the verge of stardom. He should benefit from the arrival of Anthony Bennett, the kind of pick-and-roll weapon Cleveland has lacked . . . DION WAITERS is still a work-in-progress defensively, and this will likely be another developmental year. He might end up settling in as the leader of the second unit . . . JARRETT JACK seems likely to close out games, even if he doesn't technically start. He's a creative shot-maker who will play close to starter's minutes . . . C.J. MILES is more of a situational three-point threat. SERGEY KARASEV, a polished Euro import, could push him for that role . . . CARRICK FELIX doesn't figure to crack this rotation. FORWARDS: No. 1 overall pick ANTHONY BENNETT will see time at both forward spots, and he'll be a pick-and-pop weapon no matter where he's playing. The question is whether he'll defend well enough to stay on the court for 30 minutes . . . There should also be enough minutes for TRISTAN THOMPSON, who hasn't quite put it together. The 22-year-old has upside though, and is a bigger part of Cleveland's future than Anderson Varejao . . . EARL CLARK gives the Cavs a quality second unit player who can play extended minutes if Bennett is overmatched defensively . . . A starter last year, ALONZO GEE figures to be a second-unit glue guy, but might be looking at a lot of DNP-CDs. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO is once again healthy and once again trade bait. No matter what the starting lineup looks like, he'll play major minutes at the four and five . . . The Cavs are taking a flier on ANDREW BYNUM. With his knee problems, it'd be surprising if he could give them 20-plus good minutes per night . . . TYLER ZELLER is likely the odd man out until Varejao is dealt or Bynum gets injured.
DETROIT: GUARDS: BRANDON JENNINGS got a three-year deal to prove himself as a capable point guard, not just a flashy scorer. He'll have plenty of talent surrounding him in Detroit . . . RODNEY STUCKEY is in a contract year and has plenty of motivation. The question is whether his decision-making will ever allow him to play full-time . . . CHAUNCEY BILLUPS could beat out Stuckey for the two-guard role. He can play both backcourt spots and should see plenty of minutes . . . KENTAVIOUS CALDWELL-POPE scored through a lot of double-teams in college. We'll see if the late-bloomer is able to be as effective against NBA athletes. With the depth in Detroit, he's looking at strictly second-unit minutes this year . . . WILL BYNUM is locked into a second-unit spot. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH is Detroit's new alpha dog. Offensively, he's a boom-or-bust player now that he'll spend more time on the perimeter . . . KYLE SINGLER was a steadying presence last year, and with his ability to play multiple spots, he should continue to get solid minutes off the bench . . . Italian League MVP LUIGI DATOME gives them a Swiss army knife type off the bench . . . It's back to square one for JONAS JEREBKO, who fell out of favor under Lawrence Frank. He has the kind of positional flexibility and versatility GM Joe Dumars has talked up, but he'll have to earn second-unit minutes . . . Second-rounder TONY MITCHELL is an NBA athlete who can break this rotation if the effort is there . . . CHARLIE VILLANUEVA gets paid a lot of money to do very little. CENTERS: GREG MONROE will give up some touches with Josh Smith coming in, but being surrounded by athletes like Smith and Andre Drummond will cover up his defensive flaws . . . ANDRE DRUMMOND will log close to full-time minutes with Monroe playing primarily the four. His offensive game may never come, but he's a defensive and rebounding monster. JOSH HARRELLSON will be a fan favorite who plays hard in the rare occasions he sees the floor.

*Cavaliers-Pistons Preview* ===========================

By JORDAN GARRETSON STATS Writer

Cleveland (27-44) at Detroit (26-44), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons are all but certain to continue their playoff droughts. Wednesday night's matchup in Detroit could essentially serve as a knockout game for both clubs.

The Cavaliers (28-44) have closed within 4 1/2 games of Atlanta for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, while Detroit (26-44) is one game behind them. Cleveland is trying to avoid missing out on postseason play for a fourth straight year, while the Pistons haven't qualified since 2009.

Cleveland has been without Kyrie Irving for its last five games due to a strained biceps tendon, but has won two straight after Tuesday's 102-100 home victory over fourth-place Toronto. The Cavaliers, led by 24 points from Dion Waiters, squandered a 21-point lead in the third quarter but ultimately recovered.

"It was a good win by our guys," coach Mike Brown said. "That's a playoff team. They were playing good basketball. In a game like that, maybe earlier in the season we might have lost, especially coming down the stretch when a team makes a run against us. Our guys found a way to win."

Waiters is averaging 25.5 points over his last four games while shooting 50.6 percent. He's also averaging 5.3 assists during that stretch after previously averaging 2.8 on the season. However, Waiters has just 26 points over three career matchups with Detroit.

He may have to continue to shoulder a bigger scoring load, as Brown said Irving is "closer" to a return without offering a definitive date.

Detroit has lost 15 of 19 but shot a season-high 55.4 percent from the field in a 114-94 win over the Jazz on Monday. Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe combined for 37 points and 25 rebounds and helped the Pistons record 54 points in the paint and snap a 10-game losing streak at Utah. Detroit's 52.6 points in the paint per game are the most in the NBA.

"We were both aggressive. We moved around trying to get second shots," Monroe said. "And we did a good job being patient."

Drummond, who was 9 of 10 from the floor and is 22 for 29 over his last three games, is shooting 62.3 percent on the season, trailing only DeAndre Jordan. He's averaging 19.7 points and 13.0 rebounds over his last three games versus Cleveland.

"We just took what their defense gave us. We were able to move the ball around, we were making shots and we made everybody look good tonight," said Brandon Jennings, who was 6 of 9 with 15 points. He had shot 28.2 percent over his previous four contests and has shot 26.3 percent or worse in four of five against the Cavaliers.

These clubs split two earlier meetings, with each team winning on the road. Tristan Thompson was 12 of 16 with 25 points and 15 rebounds in a 93-89 win at Detroit on Feb. 12, ending Cleveland's seven-game skid in the series. The Pistons' starting backcourt of Jennings and Kyle Singler were 5 of 23 from the floor.

Jennings, though, had 21 points and 13 assists in a 115-92 win at Cleveland on Dec. 23.
